Biography

In 2002, Vanity Fair magazine anointed Selma Blair as one of Hollywood's next wave of stars, an honor bestowed to the acting elite. Fearless and versatile throughout her career when it came to choosing her film projects, she played everything from a ditzy prep school student to a big-breasted stripper. Blair even made an icy law student seem likeable in the comedy "Legally Blonde" (2001), the film in which audiences first took notice of her. Seven years after her blockbuster debut, she still had everyone laughing in "Kath and Kim" (NBC, 2008- ), a remake of a popular Australian sitcom, where she co-starred with TV funny gal Molly Shannon and continued to enthrall fans with her quirky beauty and comedic gifts.

Bonus Trivia

.

Blair was broke when she moved to New York City at the age of 20 to pursue acting, so she had to spend a good deal of time upon her arrival living at the Salvation Army.

.

In March 2007, Blair underwent treatment for an undisclosed addiction at a Malibu rehabilitation center.

.

"Perhaps I have managed some sort of longevity because I haven't won the lead roles. I don't have the pressure of being a world-famous bombshell that has detonated." - from The Guardian, June 23, 2012

.

"You’d think Charlie Sheen and Todd Solondz would be worlds apart and have very different muses. I’m so happy that, at least for the moment, I get to have my hand on two different sides of a tent. I think that’s probably why I’m such a failure in this business. Because there’s no identity. It’s just like,"Oh, you’re that same girl"—the audiences would never meet, so each audience thinks that I’m off. One audience probably thinks I’m off in an institution for the rest of the year when I’m not making a Solondz film, and then the other audience is probably like, "Wow, the poor girl never works, but Charlie gave her a job." Because the audiences would never go to the same thing." - from Vanity Fair, July 27, 2012
